Weight Control

Guggul Extract, 2 oz.

Guggul is very similar to myrrh and is widely used in Ayurveda to increase metabolism. Being thermogenic, it is slightly deranging to pitta but very useful for kapha disorders, including obesity and congestion. It is also used to regulate the thyroid and is considered beneficial for vata types unless the patient is suffering from spasms or hiccups. It should not be used during pregnancy. Guggul reduces stickiness and is therefore considered preventative for people at risk of strokes and heart attacks.

Ingredients: 1:1 extract of Commiphora mukul resin in Organic Alcohol and Distilled Water.

Nut grass is one of the ingredients in Chyawanprash. It is a highly revered herb and is used in such a wide variety of situations that it is hard to pinpoint its role in rejuvenative therapy. First of all, the roots are considered to be effective against a wide range of abdominal and intestinal complaints, everything from menstrual discomfort to parasites. Secondly, they are anti-inflammatory and have an action on the brain that suppresses appetite, and this function works in tandem with a lipolytic effect that makes it easier to lose weight. Lastly, it has an effect on melanin that aids restoration of hair and skin color.
